"5 Shots of Whiskey" as written by and Shelton Hank Iii Williams....
Livin' alone,
Singin' my songs
Thinkin' bout the good times
When you were my own

Lady you taught me
How to hurt and cry,
And each day I'm not with you
I die more inside

Honey sweet lady why did you go?
And leave me here dying
All alone in my world?
It's all gone wrong
Since you've been gone

So give me 5 shots of whiskey
To help kill the misery and pain
You put me through
Thanks for the good times,
For they were the best of my life
I spent with you
Now what can I do?

Walkin' on Broadway
Not havin a care
I see you and your new guy
Who's strokin' your hair
And I can't keep staying
Here in my hometown,
Got to get on with my life somehow
It's all gone wrong
Since you've been gone

So give me 5 shots of whiskey
To help kill the misery and pain
You put me through
Thanks for the good times,
For they were the best of my life
I spent with you
And I still love you

    General CommentAnyone who's ever had their heart broken knows exactly what this song means. This is without a doubt one of the saddest songs I've ever heard. Shame more folks haven't heard III's stuff.
